5 years ago I put a post on Facebook inside a Beauty Therapist group asking if any salon owners would be interested in having some sales training.
I got over 200 comments saying yes, but excitement soon turned to extreme disappointment!! 😓
Apparently somebody saw the post as inappropriate, and without hesitation, the admins took it down… BEFORE I could confirm people’s details!
In between the period of time I posted and it was taken down, I had already booked a location in Melbourne and had spent money on the deposit. (Foolish I know, but I was excited!) 😆
I was so disappointed when I could no longer access these people’s details, and worse than that, I wasn’t allowed to repost and ask!
I managed to salvage some of the names, and I pushed forward anyways – I’d already paid money out after all!
30 days later after scrambling madly to get some people to attend and at least cover costs, I hosted my first ever sales training in Melbourne, with 25 people in attendance. 🤗
Last year I upped the ante, and hosted 7 seminars in Auckland, Christchurch, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.
Each event had around 50 – 100 people attend, which was a step up from the Sales Training events I had been running.
This year, I decided to MASSIVELY increase the size and scale, and I will be hosting SALONGROWTHCON in June for 1,500 people!! 🤩
From 25 people in a small hotel in Melbourne, to 1,500 people inside a massive arena at the Gold Coast Convention Centre with a HUGE international celebrity speaker…
… all within 5 years.
If you want it bad enough, you will make it happen – no matter what! 👊
Create your dream, work hard, persist, learn from failure, persist some more and make your dreams become a reality!
If I can do it, you can too! ♥💙💜
